My adventures in Norway and Paris Day 2

Welcome to the Norsk Quilte Festival.
I'll be sharing some of the fantastic quilting that I saw in Norway.


 This is the lecture evening where all the teachers from the festival share what they are teaching.
Cindy and I shared a display of quilts that we brought with us from Riley Blake Designs.
This is Sue Daley's quilt from her new book...soon to be released... Raspberry Tea...
focused on her new line of fabric called Raspberry Parlour.


 This is our Christmas line called Lost and Found Christmas designed by My Mind's Eye.
I designed this free quilt pattern called "Tis the Season" which you can find here.


Sue Daley teaching her english paper piecing method...


Sue Daley's quilt called "Marmalade" which she taught...isn't it fabulous!


The following are classes that were taught by Masako from Crib Quilt Designs...her work is beautiful!





Here are some of the lovely women from one of my classes...I loved teaching them and was amazed at how quickly they learn and what great handwork they do...


Welcome to the opening day of the Festival...all the stores have opened for business...









don't you love the tables stacked one upon the other...










how adorable are those tiny bundles of fabric...



all of these items in this store are recycled from old clothing...




















These were fabulous quilts on display by the local designers and quilters from Norway...
